Double treble champions Orlando Pirates will host three-times Absa Premiership winners SuperSport United at Orlando Stadium at 7:30pm tomorrow. This will be their first encounter of the second half of the season following the long Afcon break. Pirates are currently second on the log, trailing leaders Kaizer Chiefs by one point while SuperSport United will be looking for a better performance in the second half of the season as they currently occupy eighth spot.
After close to two months of no PSL action, the Happy People are expected to turn out in their numbers to spur on Lucky Lekgwathi and the team who will be looking to topple their arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs. Gates open at 4pm tomorrow with Happy Hour at selected bars from 4pm to 5pm.
Tickets are on sale at Computicket and cost R40 for adults and R10 for children. Basement parking tickets cost R20. For bookings or more information, go to www.computicket.com, call 0861 915 8000 or visit any Computicket outlet countrywide.
Jacques Grobbelaar, Stadium Management Chairman and CEO, says they’re expecting a good turnout tomorrow. “Orlando Pirates last home game was on 8 December which is a long time for their fans who were yearning for Absa Premiership action from as early as January. We’re expecting a good crowd at Orlando Stadium tomorrow and for their fans to get fully behind the team who also has some tough African Champions League fixtures coming up.”
